"The 'Metrotown model' might work for Burnaby or Coquitlam,
but Port Moody can do better."
Growth is easy.
Retaining what makes your town amazing as it grows requires a fresh approach:
Stick To The Plan - Don't exceed our Community Plan's ambitious growth targets
Big Picture Planning - City-wide discussions every time, not just considering projects one-by-one
Real Negotiating with builders for affordable housing, amenities, parkland.
No more crumbs from developers' tables
Modernize Economic Development - Business-friendly city, ready for tomorrow's economy
Quality of Life First - Let's get back to winning livability awards!
Protect Our Parks and natural spaces, including Bert Flinn Park
Expand Parkland with population growth - Push for a meaningful expansion of Rocky Point Park in Oceanfront project
Wildlife Co-Existence - Mitigate human-wildlife conflict with big-picture wildlife strategies
Reduce Greenhouse Emissions - Set goals to exceed Provincial GHG reduction targets
Manage congestion - Explore every possible traffic idea including Green Wave timing, counterflow, signal priority, etc
Transportation Committee - Immediately re-instate vital resident-led Committee
Alternate-Mode Incentives to encourage walking, cycling, carshare, transit use
Modernize Capital Plan - Fund civic facilities (library, fields, etc) with growth, prioritized to reduce political interference
Remove Ioco Road from Major Road Network - Limit thru-traffic to create a safer, more neighbourhood-oriented street
